Lotus Martini

The Lotus Martini is a pretty standard cocktail, but I've mixed mine up a bit by using Square One's Botanical Vodka. I feel the flowery notes add a lot to this lychee flavored martini.
  • 3 oz Square One Botanical Vodka
  • 1 oz Soho Lychee Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Blue Curacao
  • up to 1/2 oz Grenadine
  • Edible Flower
Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Shake all liquid ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats and strain into the glass. Add a bit of grenadine and shake while watching the color. Add just enough to make the cocktail a nice lavender hue. Garnish with an edible flower.
